Hi There ... I use autohotkey to replace a few characters with full paragraphs... ie... ::yrs:: Yours faithfully 'r 'r D. Court. The 'r works great for sending the enter key. My problem now is trying to send the tab key in the same autoreplace function. E.g. what I want to do is...1) enter words "fred smith" 2) send tab key 3) enter numbers "45.44" 3) send tab key 4) enter words "rental" 4) send enter key. I can do it all except the send tab key... ::fs1: fred smith (tab) 45.44 (tab) rental 'r. I've tried searching because I feel sure it's possible yet despite my searches I can't find it. Thanks for your help!

When in doubt, read the documentation. Honestly I read the entire readme from beginning to end before I started. I don't remember most of it, but the important parts I do, as well as have an idea of where to look for most particular problems.

Check Send and about escape characters. :)
